The Band Perry If I Die Young Lyrics

Last updated: 08/15/2013 07:22:32 AM

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh, uh oh

Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh and
Life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no
Ain't even grey, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had, just enough time

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had, just enough time

And I'll be wearing white, when I come into your kingdom
I'm as green as the ring on my little, cold finger, I've
Never known the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand, there's a
Boy here in town says he'll, love my forever
Who would have thought forever could be severed by
The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had, just enough time

So put on your best boys and I'll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh no, I'll sell them for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin'
Funny when your dead how people start listenin'

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh (uh, oh)
The ballad of a dove (uh, oh)
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep 'em in your pocket
Save them for a time when your really gonna need them, oh

The sharp knife of a short life, well
I've had, just enough time

So put on your best boys and I'll wear my pearls

Somethings are better not to said | Reviewer: Lesotho, Maseru | 8/15/13

Like most of people, I fear death and it's scares me a lot. but the rhythm and the whole parkage of this it pushes me to rewind it again and again and again. It is so nice to listen to.

Mom and Jaynie | Reviewer: Megan | 7/11/12

I lost my mom in Jan 2010 when she was only 34 and I was 14. Then 22 months later, in November 2011, I lost my 3 month old daughter who had been born prematurely because of health complications that I had. I only got to hold her a few times. Her name was Jayne Elizabeth, and I called her my Jaynie girl. This song makes me think of both my mom and my sweet little Jaynie. I miss them both so much and I've cried every night since losing Jaynie. I can't have them back, and I can't be with them, and I wonder what the point to it all is?

People really do die young | Reviewer: Nia Chapman | 6/8/11

This song chills me to the bone. I have always had a fear of dying young. People do die young everyday. Heres to all the kids with cancer or born with aids. Or anyone who had to loose a child before their time. So many families who have lost someone before their time R.I.P
